I am looking for a motor scooter carrier that I can mount on the back of my 2007 Winnebago Sightseer (Gas) that also has a 2" receiver hitch built in so that I can also tow my 2012 Ford Focus.
I see setups like this for diesel
pushers not for gas powered RV's.
If anyone out there has a set up like this what type of carries/hauler do you use? Thanks to those who can help me out.
The issue is that on the Gas powered Class A, there is typically a limit of 500 lbs of tongue weight and the Toad does not contribute to that. This means the scooter and carrier must weigh less than 500 lbs.
The reason that you see more of these on diesel RV's is that their tongue weight limit is higher than 500 lbs, approaching 1,000 lbs.
There are thoughts about increasing the tongue weight limit of the hitches, but this involves re-enforcing the frame extension in the rear, etc, which can turn costly, especially if not done correctly.
The key element is how much does the scooter weigh?
